The Official Finished Coupes thread!!

This is the official 'Finished Coupes' thread. Those of us deep in the trenches need some inspiration to help us keep on trudging forward, so those of you with finished cars please post your best picture of the car here for us to drool over until ours are on the road.

One picture each please. If you really can't decide which is you best we'll take a few, but we're looking for variety here so try to narrow it down to one!


Let me start things off with one of my favorites from the FFR web site...


Thanks all,


Bill

A few of mine are in the Coupe Gallery (Cone Basher). I built mine for speed events so it's not a show car but it is a HOOT to drive. Went to LCS last year and the build quality of the Coupes there was amazing!!

Scott.

Nice valve covers! I see the reference to Dave Bordon; can you offer any more info on where to get these or to get some covers engraved?

Thanks in advance.

PM David Borden and see if he wants to do another set of them. I purchased the covers and sent them to Dave. He engraved them and sent them back to me.

Welp, I sure as heck didn't build it... but I have pretty much had to take everything apart and fix, loc-tite, re-engineer, and make right in the last 6 months. Making this a daily driver and only car the whole time as well has been.... Interesting!
